Theon's post is an obvious play on the Misano boo birds. It's a good thing you posted on the Misano race thread to rebuke such un-elegant behavior. Maybe it got lost in translation, though I donít know Daniboy's excuse since he's an English speaker.

Nobody is relishing in Rossi's injury but rather using the occasion to point out the double standards, the disproportional sympathy, and the assignment of supposed extraordinary heroism. I invite you to watch the pre-event preshow. The chick and the bald guy were orgasming on the comeback of the century. They interviewed Massimo Meregali, who was trying to put it into perspective, saying injuries are different and this one allows VR to come back relatively quick, the commentators ignored him and continued falling over themselves to praise the super human feat.

That wasn't enough, the reporter's just needed more on the subject. Kropo using the opportunity to ask Rossi the redundant question, so Rossi, when did you know you were coming back this 'early', when you sat at home watching the Misano race (just a few days removed from incident)? Nominate Rossi for the Nobel prize for inspiring comebacks.

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.
I'm completely alien to your idea of "rooting" for or against. I love the sport and try to respect all riders, even those I don't like. Your obsession vs Rossi is so apparent, Jeez -- you can't leave alone this rider even when he has a broken leg. Silence would be the right thing to do for you in this case -- but no, you can't help trying dismissing his best efforts to ride a MotoGP bike at 38 with a compound fracture. Others may have done the same or even better, but so what? Why hitting a wounded enemy? Vultures may have something to learn from people like you... Beer or even whiskey is no excuse in this case, I'm afraid.

To be accurate, the 2010 fracture was a compound fracture, but less of a problem than normally would be the case because it was contained by his leathers.

This one wasn't compound by all reports, which doesn't mean getting 3rd on the grid 3 weeks or so later at age 38 is unimpressive.

Amazing to get a 3rd spot, but still doesn't change things for me. Getting a surgeon out of bed at 2am to operate, I'd have told them to go fix it themselves as sleep is a necessity for a surgeon.

I'll tell you what I did hate about the qualifying, that fat lump of shit uccio, he got at least 1 minute of tv time.

I'll be sober in the morning, you'll continue to be detached from reality.

You are protesting me constantly pointing out reality buddy. You reject and refuse it and your defense is simply to say I'm obsessed with point out the truth. That's never been done before...

J4, I've said nothing about Rossiís comeback other than it's praiseworthy for the individual and typical of athletes at this level. You disapprove? Oh, I know, you don't like me pointing out something else, you want me silent, why?

I enjoy pointing out the disproportionate obsession to Rossi by the majority of spectators like you; it's so extreme that there's a lot to point out, not surprisingly you take issue with the reaction instead of the actual source. Here is a great example, you J4 'believe' (like a religion, contrary to actual reality and evidence) that Ducati did nothing radical or extraordinary to help Rossi at Ducati, hence 'Ducati' failed. Just like that Rossi is blameless, like the little white lamb, who suffered at the sacrificial alter. Your perspective isn't unique among the Cult, and it's no different today, I'm just pointing this fact out. When I pointed this out 'repeatedly' you could accuse me of being obsessed with Rossi, when in fact it's pointing out this odd pervasive fantasy spell you Yellow Minions live under.

It's no different today, I havenít said shit about Rossi's motives but rather the disproportionate grandiose and frankly inaccurate assessment that it's extraordinary. It's not. So why so much obsession to characterize it this way? I've been listing several examples of riders coming back from serious injury without the fanfare. The fact we have to look it up should tell you something about the sport. It is Rossi obsessed, unfairly to the other "heroes" that have done just as great, you want me to shut up about that. Only one hero for this sport then.

Jumkie, you have to look things up because they happened in the past, little wonder that they're not in the news now.
Your continuous anti Rossi diatribe is getting a bit tiresome, you're looking less of a GP fan and more of a hater which is a pity really.
Try talking about moto GP in the current sense without referring to Rossi all the time, there's a lot more going on than just him.

There's more going on than just Rossi, that's EXACTLY my point!
